To add more complexity to a turkey, try this Mexican-inspired spice rub. This rub can be used on the outside of the skin, or rubbed under the skin, to intensify the Mexican flavors of a South of the Boarder Style Beer Brined Turkey.
In a small bowl, mix together the cumin, coriander, paprika, salt, pepper, ancho, chipotle, oregano and garlic powder. Add the lime zest and mix the spices together. Place this spice rub into a jar until ready to use. This rub will last for 3 months.
How to Use:
Sprinkle the rub over a washed and cleaned turkey evenly. Rub it evenly into the skin and | or under the skin. Then allow the turkey to marinate for 2 hours, while the turkey slightly warms on the counter, in a roasting pan, before cooking.
